(If you’ve already read this then skip past all the italicized blah-di-blah and start writing.) Monday Moments are writing prompts for your work-in-progress. They are questions that come from my experiences and are my favorite way to find out more about my characters. I find I learn a lot. Some of it I use. Some of it I don’t. But I always, always get to know my character(s) better just by answering the question. I hope you do too. )
It was a big week for music in our family. We had a band/orchestra/choir concert to attend. Plus, our first born hit the big double digits over the weekend, which involved throwing a music themed party.
Can I first say, 5th-grade-band teachers are amazing people. That has GOT to be one of the toughest jobs on earth. Got. To. Be.
Just take a quick 15 second listen.
(Yes, I know my video is sideways, but it's all about the sound. I'm still learning how to use my phone.)
Now, I must say, these kids have made progress. Truly. But as I sat there listening, I just couldn't help but to image a day filled with those new band-instrument-learning sounds. Wow!
Our girlie was in the choir, and how can you not love a choir that breaks out with this...
That song gave me a little oomph to kick some writerly rear this week!
